You only need two ingredients and a few minutes to make this recipe! Heres what they are:
Bourbon: Any bourbon will work. I used Makers Mark Makers 46.
Maple Syrup: I like Grade A, dark color because I find it has more flavor. But use what you like.
And thats it!
If you cook on a gas stove, this is important.
First, measure the bourbon into the sauce pan before turning the flame on.
Bourbon is flammable and its dangerous to have the flame on when adding the liquor to the pan.
Then, turn the flame on and bring to a simmer. Boil the bourbon for 1 minute. This cooks the alcohol out.
Next, add the maple syrup.
Now, turn off the heat and allow the mixture to cool slightly.
Finally, use it as desired or transfer to an airtight container to store.
